|Synopsis||World Bowls 1976 saw South Africa win gold medals in the fours, triples, pairs and singles - a momentous achievement. Doug Watson, in winning the singles title, beat 14 of his 15 opponents and since then has gone on to win five South African Masters Championships. In his well illustrated Not Without Bias he introduces the world of bowls to expert and beginner alike. A general introduction and biographical chapter introduce Watson himself, on the greens the 'mean machine', off the greens the mild mannered 'nice guy'.
Following chapters take the reader onto the green and into the game covering such aspects as the basics of bowls: grip, stance and delivery. Watson gives advice on how to practise and then turns to the game itself with chapters on singles, pairs, triples and fours . . . on through the tensions and tactics of tournament bowls to the winner's dais.
